Hi All,

first time on this forum.

I have had a Phantom 3 Standard for a while and have had no problems, however....I haven't flown for over a year for various reasons and had some good weather and a little time and ran into the following issue.

Power on controller and light is red....which is expected

Turn on drone, but it won't stay powered up. (this hasn't ever happened before) recharged the battery and it shows full charge but still the drone won't stay on.

How can I trouble shoot?

I'm sure a bunch of you have moved on from the Phantom Standard but mine up to this point has been great and I'm still on the original props.

thanks for any help

Since it's been a year since you have flown.  Are you pressing the button on the drone battery, push release and push and hold for 5 seconds?

Hi there, please try to power on the battery without it inserting to the drone and see if it can be powered on normally, the way it powered on is the same as the controller's. If it won't stay powered up, you may try to change another battery. If the battery can be powered up normally, but it won't be powered on with the drone, you may need to send in the drone for diagnosis.

Sounds like your battery is dead.

PS thanks for the advice....the part that fooled me was that all 4 lights on the battery would come on then go off....its obviously been too long since I was flying

If you're not going to fly for a while, you need to keep an eye on the battery and keep it within storage level range.  Otherwise it will die.
